Who here knows their stuff when it comes to what configuration can handle what kind of load? We have to setup a test server that will be handling about 40 requests per minute. It will be handing back images as well as some textual data. The database is roughly 200 gig I believe. I was wondering if a desktop machine with a P4 with a 800 FSB, 2-3gig of ram and SATA drives could handle this? We are trying to keep costs down since this is a test and may not turn into anything solid. Also to note, this will not be serving images over the internet, but rather in a LAN environment with a Gbit network.
